British Chicken:
The Truth


Animal Equality’s vision is a world in which all animals are respected and protected.

Animal Equality is an international organisation working with society, governments and companies to end cruelty to farmed animals.

As an animal protection organisation, we are guided by compassion, determination and effectiveness.

Using these values to launch innovative projects and strategic campaigns, we work to expose and abolish the cruel practices of the animal agriculture industry.

Our teams in the UK, Germany, Italy, Spain, Mexico, Brazil, USA and India consist of highly qualified professionals with years of experience in undercover investigations, corporate campaigns, political outreach and the development of large-scale education programmes.


With over ten years of experience in international campaigns, we are committed to saving as many animals as possible and to reducing the enormous suffering animals endure on factory farms. Our commitment to continually assessing the impact of our campaigns and programmes makes us increasingly efficient at saving lives.

International Achievements

We want to share some of our international achievements with you. Without your support none of this would be possible, thanks for being on the side of the animals!

UK Dairy reforms

We saw two victories in 2017. Our investigation in 2016, which uncovered shocking cruelty towards cows and calves at the family-run Pyrlands Dairy Farm, led to the conviction of the farm worker responsible. Furthermore, Marks and Spencer audited Grange Dairy and subsequently joined the RSPCA Assured Scheme after our investigation showed six-month-old calves were being caged in solitary pens meant for calves up to the age of six-weeks. Although dairy farming can never be humane, this step eliminates some of the worst cruelty.
